Different styles and subject matter collided, but salon walls quickly became the height of fashion and entertainment. A truly grand sight, the arrangement gained popularity with collectors, art lovers and galleries. A salon even launched the Louvre’s international reputation in the art world.

A gallery wall is the simplest way to overhaul your room, no matter your budget or space. They’re fun, striking and stylish - and there are endless options to make sure your gallery wall is the perfect mirror of your personality.
It’s all about self-expression. With a gallery wall you can not only tie your room together, but inject your own character into the décor.

As well as mixing and matching the art itself, the same can be said of frames and sizing. Consider trying out different coloured frames within one gallery wall and always feature art of many different sizes.
Art has a positive impact on our wellbeing, stirring a range of emotions and providing us with a source of inspiration and happiness. Your gallery wall should be like taking a short journey through your thoughts and feelings. Ideally it will make you smile, calm you after a hectic day, or spark your imagination - whatever you desire.
Curating Your Gallery Wall
The best thing about gallery walls is their ability to make an impact in any space. They’re incredibly adaptable to exactly what you need. From huge gallery walls covering your stairway, to smaller ones to inspire you in an intimate study space; the possibilities really are endless.
Let’s talk about layouts, so you can get started with the important bit: expressing yourself and turning your house into a home.

Adding A Gallery Wall To A Small Space
If you have a bare wall in the corner of your kitchen or entrance hallway, adding a gallery wall can still create a big impact.
Simply selecting a choice of two or three artworks in different frame sizes, including figurative watercolours, abstracts and typography, you can instantly add depth to your space.

Looking For Something Larger?
If you have a larger space and can accommodate up to ten frames, you will have a greater choice of gallery wall layouts to choose from.
Displaying multiple coordinating framed prints in different sizes is a great way to create an eye-catching gallery wall. This abstract gallery wall is one of our customer favourites as the blue colour palette fits well in any space.
